Good Luck


Miners are believers, because its a good thing to have supernatural help in the dangerous underground workplace. Typical signs are the statues of Saint Barbara, the patron Saint of the miners, and the miners greeting. But miners are also superstitious, so rituals and wishing luck was important too. So a special term for wishing luck was appropriate.
